  • Roundtable: The Arbitral Tribunal’s Ruling on the South China Sea —
           Implications and Regional Responses
    • Abstract: Three and a half years after the Philippines took the unprecedented step of challenging the legal basis of China’s expansive maritime claims in the South China Sea, the Arbitral Tribunal established under compulsory dispute resolution provisions contained in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and based at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, issued its final ruling on 12 July 2016.The award was far more comprehensive and decisive than many legal experts had predicted: the Philippines won 14 of the 15 disputes under consideration. The Tribunal was not mandated to adjudicate on the sovereignty of hundreds of geographical features which make up the Spratly archipelago, but ... Read More

  • A Landmark Decision in the South China Sea: The Scope and Implications of
           the Arbitral Tribunal’s Award
    • Abstract: On 12 July 2016, the Arbitral Tribunal in the case between the Philippines and China delivered its award.1 The Tribunal’s ruling represents a sweeping victory for the Philippines and fundamentally alters the international legal land, or more appropriately, seascape of the South China Sea. This article has three aims: first, to outline the character of the Tribunal and the status of its award; second to summarize the Tribunal’s main findings; and third, to explore some of the potential implications of the award, both within and beyond the South China Sea.Both China and the Philippines are parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS, or the Convention). Part XV of the Convention, which ... Read More

  • The Philippines and the Arbitral Tribunal’s Award: A Sombre Victory
           and Uncertain Times Ahead
    • Abstract: The Philippines is in the midst of a transition. The astonishing rise and decisive victory of Rodrigo Duterte in the presidential election in May 2016 marked a significant turning point in Philippine politics. Manila’s longstanding territorial and maritime boundary disputes with Beijing in the South China Sea are among the most immediate and intricate foreign policy challenges facing President Duterte. However, in an unexpected twist, previously acrimonious bilateral relations with China have demonstrated signs of improvement while Duterte’s relentless and fiercely critical rhetoric against the United States has placed the country’s robust and longstanding security and defence relations with America in question. ...

  • The South China Sea Arbitral Tribunal Award: Political and Legal
           Implications for China
    • Abstract: The release of the Arbitral Tribunal’s award on 12 July 2016 brought to an end the arbitration case on the South China Sea which the Philippines had unilaterally brought against China in January 2013. This thoroughly one-sided award ruled that many of China’s maritime claims in the South China Sea were contrary to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and had thereby violated Philippine sovereign rights and freedoms. The ruling does not mean that the dispute between the Philippines and China is over. But it does have political and legal implications for China, especially its future approach to managing and eventually resolving the country’s maritime disputes.When it comes to international ...

  • Taiwan and the Arbitral Tribunal’s Ruling: Responses and Future
           Challenges
    • Abstract: The Arbitral Tribunal’s award of 12 July 2016 was overwhelmingly in favour of the Philippines and denounced by China. Although the Republic of China (ROC, or Taiwan) was not a party to the arbitration, it was dragged into the proceedings, as the issue of the status and entitlements of Itu Aba — the largest geographical feature in the Spratly Islands, occupied by Taiwan and also known as Taiping Island — gained prominence in the course of the Tribunal’s deliberations.The Tribunal’s award declared that Itu Aba is a “rock” and not an “island” as defined by Article 121 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).1 The ROC government — headed by Taiwan’s new President and Chair of the Democratic ...

  • The South China Sea Award: Legal Implications for Vietnam
    • Abstract: The Arbitral Tribunal award on the South China Sea, issued on the 12 July 2016, was a legal game changer.1 As a major claimant in the South China Sea, the award has significant implications for Vietnam. This article addresses both the opportunities and challenges for Vietnam, as well as the short term and long term impacts of the Tribunal’s award.Vietnam claims sovereignty over the Paracel and Spratly archipelagos on the basis of effectivités of the international law on territorial acquisition. In a note verbale to the United Nations dated 22 February 2016, Vietnam stated that it “has ample legal basis and historical evidence to affirm its indisputable sovereignty over Hoang Sa [Paracel] Archipelago and Truong Sa ...

  • Malaysia’s Approach to the South China Sea Dispute after the
           Arbitral Tribunal’s Ruling
    • Abstract: Malaysia has traditionally adopted a “playing it safe” approach to the South China Sea designed to secure its claims while simultaneously ensuring that it preserves its important bilateral relationship with China. Ahead of the ruling by the Arbitral Tribunal on 12 July 2016, that approach had come under increasing scrutiny, given the bolder and more frequent Chinese encroachments into Malaysian waters as well as some other diplomatic incidents in the Sino-Malaysian relationship.However, thus far the ruling has provided Malaysia with an opportunity to pursue both prongs of its traditional approach. The verdict is a shot in the arm for international law, which is central to Malaysia’s South China Sea policy, and a ... Read More

  • The Domestic Politics of Indonesia’s Approach to the Tribunal Ruling
           and the South China Sea
    • Abstract: Indonesia’s immediate response to the 12 July ruling by the Arbitral Tribunal was under-whelming. The foreign ministry issued a bland, lacklustre five-sentence statement:Indonesia calls on all parties to exercise restraint and refrain from escalatory activities while securing Southeast Asia from military activities that could threaten peace and stability, and instead should respect international law, including 1982 UNCLOS.Indonesia calls on all parties to continue the common commitment to uphold peace and exhibit friendship and cooperation, as have been well-sustained thus far.Indonesia urges all parties in the South China Sea to behave and conduct their activities according to agreed-upon principles.Indonesia will ...

  • Deciphering the Shift in America’s South China Sea Policy
    • Abstract: The tensions resulting from the territorial and maritime jurisdictional disputes between China and five Southeast Asian countries — Brunei, Indonesia,1 Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam — have for years dominated the headlines on the South China Sea and defined the lens through which the issue is seen. While the United States has at times expressed its concerns over incidents in which destabilizing actions occurred, these developments had minimal impact on the US grand strategy of preventing the rise of a potential hegemon in the Western Pacific. Prior to China’s push to enlarge the features it occupies in the Spratly Islands, US officials largely viewed the sovereignty dispute as a matter to be resolved ... Read More

  • Xi Jinping’s Foreign Policy Dilemma: One Belt, One Road or the South
           China Sea?
    • Abstract: Since Xi Jinping became President, General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and head of the Central Military Commission in 2012–13, a significant amount of attention has been devoted to his leadership style and foreign policy initiatives.1 Under his leadership, several significant foreign policy initiatives have been undertaken, including a more stringent policy towards North Korea and the establishment of an Air Defence Identification Zone (ADIZ) in the East China Sea. Moreover, during the US–China presidential summit in June 2013, Xi called for a “new type of major-power relationship”, in which China and the United States would strive to avoid conflict, increase cooperation and develop a mutually ...

  • Russia’s Image and Soft Power Resources in Southeast Asia: Perceptions
           among Young Elites in Laos, Thailand and Vietnam
    • Abstract: The main purpose of this study is to analyze Russia’s soft power resources in Laos, Vietnam and Thailand. To achieve this goal, it draws on the results of a survey on perceptions of Russia conducted by the author in 2012–13 among students enrolled at the National University of Laos, Vientiane, Thammasat University in Bangkok and the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam in Hanoi.As Anton Tsvetov has argued, Southeast Asia today plays a secondary role in Russia’s foreign policy.2 Nevertheless, for a number of reasons it is important to understand the ways Russia is perceived in the region. From a purely academic perspective, the extant academic literature that deals with perceptions of Russia, its soft power and related ... Read More

  • Campaigning for All Indonesians: The Politics of Healthcare in Indonesia
    • Abstract: Many scholars argue that democratization fosters redistribution through electoral competition and inclusiveness.1 By extending the franchise to the poor, they argue, democracy provides electoral incentives that promise social protection for its citizens. In addition, voters can penalize governments when they fail to carry out their promises. However, regime type is not sufficient to explain social policy outcomes. Although democracy does provide incentives for politicians to promise social protections to the newly enfranchised poor, it does not guarantee the enactment or implementation of inclusive social reform policies. What then explains social policy expansion in developing countries? This article explores this ... Read More

  • Reflections of a Reformed Jihadist: The Story of Wan Min Wan Mat
    • Abstract: In recent testimony before a US Congressional Subcommittee on Counter-terrorism and Intelligence on 27 April 2016, the Singaporean scholar Joseph Liow argued that while the threat to Southeast Asia from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also known as IS) was not to be dismissed out of hand, it was not in his view the greatest challenge to the region. He argued instead that “the greater, long-term threat comes from a rejuvenated Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), which has a larger network and is better funded than the pro-ISIS groups in the region”.1 Liow’s concerns do not appear unfounded. Just a month earlier it had been reported that the Indonesian police had killed a thirty-four-year-old alleged militant from ... Read More

  • The Pivot: The Future of American Statecraft in Asia by Kurt M. Campbell
           (review)
    • Abstract: American foreign policy has always come in numerous editions. The first unfolds in the press as its practitioners try to shape the world to America’s liking. Subsequent ones come out in book form, as they later seek to justify the wisdom of their policies. The Asian adventures of the first Obama administration (2009–12) are no exception. James Steinberg, a former Deputy Secretary of State, has co-authored (with Michael O’Hanlon) a book on “strategic reassurance” in US–China relations. Jeffrey Bader, who was on the National Security Council at the time, has written “an insider’s account of America’s Asia strategy”. And the former Secretary of State herself, Hillary Clinton, has published a volume of memoirs covering ... Read More

  • Thai Politics: Between Democracy and Its Discontents by Daniel H. Unger
           and Chandra Mahakanjana (review)
    • Abstract: What explains the decade-long political conflict in Thailand? More broadly, why has the democracy project remained so elusive for this nation despite having had more than eighty years of trials and tribulations since the end of absolute monarchy? Thai Politics: Between Democracy and Its Discontents is among recent scholarship that seeks to provide accounts and explanations for the ongoing political crisis that has engulfed Thailand since 2005. Marked by two coups d’état in 2006 and 2014, some scholars in the field of comparative politics — regime study in particular — have viewed Thailand as a critical case for what constitutes a “reverse wave” of democratization that has plagued several countries experiencing ...

  • Democratization through Migration? Political Remittances and Participation
           of Philippine Return Migrants by Christl Kessler and Stefan Rother
           (review)
    • Abstract: This book presents a convincing narrative on the political socialization of Filipino migrant workers in both democratic and authoritarian host countries, and the extent and ways by which such socialization affects the workers’ attitudes towards politics in their home country. It is convincing because it nuances what is obviously a complex nexus: migration and politics.The main strength of the book lies in the mixed quantitative-qualitative research methodology employed by the authors. The book draws largely from surveys among first time and returned migrants, but it also allows the migrants’ voices to speak for themselves. It is this combination of data and voice that makes the reader pay close attention to every ... Read More

  • Governing Cambodia’s Forests: The International Politics of Policy
           Reform by Andrew Cock, and: Cambodia’s Second Kingdom: Nation,
           Imagination, and Democracy by Astrid Norén-Nilsson (review)
    • Abstract: Aside from being books on contemporary Cambodian politics, Andrew Cock’s Governing Cambodia’s Forests: The International Politics of Policy Reform and Astrid Norén-Nilsson’s Cambodia’s Second Kingdom: Nation, Imagination, and Democracy both share a common link: David Chandler. Chandler, the original Cambodianist, wrote the foreword to Norén-Nilsson’s book and proffered a generous blurb to Cock’s. Stylistically and methodologically, however, they diverge. Cock’s book came about as part of his work as a forestry policy advisor (and formed the basis of his doctorate) at NGO Forum, an umbrella non-profit organization based in Cambodia, for four years in the early 2000s. This gave him an incredible vantage point, but ... Read More

  • Activism and Aid: Young Citizens’ Experiences of Development and
           Democracy in Timor-Leste by Ann Wigglesworth (review)
    • Abstract: In Activism and Aid, Ann Wigglesworth delivers a clear and highly readable account of young Timorese’ experiences in development and democracy during the first decade of Timor-Leste’s independence. The context of the book sits squarely within the domain of development literature, which seeks to question the effectiveness and relevance of international interventions that lack grounding in local realities.Timor-Leste was pegged as the United Nation’s (UN) “success story”, a country that was democratically established in 1999 after twenty-four years of Indonesian occupation. In the same year, the country descended into a political crisis to the perplexity of international players. The historically-devoid approach of ... Read More

  • The Politics of Aid to Burma: A Humanitarian Struggle on the
           Thai–Burmese Border by Anne Décobert (review)
    • Abstract: Humanitarian practitioners and academic researchers evolve in universes that hardly seem to converge. In The Politics of Aid to Burma, Anne Décobert — who wears both a development specialist’s and an anthropologist’s hat — successfully manages to bridge the gap. The author provides a detailed description and analysis of the politics of aid through the lens of people and organizations working along the Thai–Burma border, and draws heavily on her personal experiences and participatory observation approach. This authentic first person narrative provides a chronicle of how lines drawn on paper — marked by marker stones, barbed wire and land mines — at times decide life and death.The focus of the book is Back Pack, a ...

  • The Handbook of Contemporary Cambodia ed. by Katherine Brickell and Simon
           Springer (review)
    • Abstract: No other book better depicts the country’s “here and now” than The Handbook of Contemporary Cambodia. By avoiding the usual — and often simplistic — Western-centric narratives of the country’s development challenges, this volume presents a first-rate account of current Cambodian society. Although both editors come from a geography background, their book provides a unique and well-rounded insight into the country’s current situation, primarily because of their engagement with international and local academics, development professionals and activists.As is made clear in the introduction, the traumatic Khmer Rouge era provides only a partial explanation of the forces that have shaped contemporary Cambodia. The country ... Read More

  • Humanizing the Sacred: Sisters in Islam and the Struggle for Gender
           Justice in Malaysia by Azza Basarudin (review)
    • Abstract: Sisters in Islam (SIS) is a non-governmental organization (NGO) that advocates for Muslim women’s rights in Malaysia. The NGO works within an Islamic framework, reinterpreting sacred texts through a feminist lens. Members of SIS have been labelled as deviants by Islamic authorities, have had their books banned, received threats and had a fatwa issued against them. Humanizing the Sacred is a richly detailed ethnographic account of this path-breaking organization.Basarudin’s book has two goals. The first is to examine “the possibilities and challenges of translating feminist interpretations of Islam into grounded activism to effect change in social mores and legal codes, and to illuminate how women’s activism within ...
